Kyle Craft has released his video for “Eye of a Hurricane,” the track comes off his debut album Dolls of Highland, now out on Sub Pop Records. The clip was co-directed by Craft and Tyler Bertram.
The “Eye of a Hurricane” video finds Kyle Craft leaving a bar after a squabble with a romantic partner only to find himself wandering the streets at night. He stumbles upon a party where he is lured inside and dressed in drag. Shortly after, he returns to the bar and steals away his previous partner’s new squeeze.
Craft had this to sayof the video, “I wanted something quick with a candid feel to it. One of my roommates had his annual drag birthday get together and it seemed like the story would sort of write itself if we just started shooting. I feel like we approached this in the same way I approached the album… Hit record, see what happens.”
Kyle Craft’s late spring U.S. tour schedule in support of Dolls of Highland resumes tonight, May 19th in San Francisco at the Independent and currently ends May 30th in Salt Lake City, UT at Kilby Court. Along the way, he’ll support the Fruit Bats (May19th-25th) and share the stage with label mates Arbor Labor Union (May 29th).
Dolls of Highland features the singles “Lady of the Ark,” “Eye of a Hurricane,” “Pentecost,” and “Future Midcity Massacre.” Dolls of Highland was written, recorded and produced by Craft, mixed by Brandon Summers and Benjamin Weikel of The Helio Sequence at the Old Jantzen Building in Portland, and mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound.
